I auditioned for FOAs in 2012 on a whim. Raidizon Mercedes, the boy who lived down the hall, asked me if I was going to audition. Never would I thought, three years later, in my senior year, that I would be directing a FOA with him. Though always a supporter, the FOAs have been my only real connection (other than Raidizon, the company's president) to the barnstormers. I'm thrilled that it has come full circle with an amazing group of freshman in whom we got to cultivate their sass (Michael), their love of chocolate (Amy), and their general weirdness (David). This month has flown by and I have truly grown to love my FOAMily.
